Goodyear was appointed after Brian Gilbertson unexpectedly resigned after just six months as CE.

BHP Billiton, the world’s biggest diversified mining group, said Gilbertson had resigned due to ‘irreconcilable differences with the board’.

He was responsible for the merger of Australia’s BHP with South African-listed Billiton in mid-2001.

Goodyear played a key role in turning around the fortunes of BHP in the late 1990s.
